Our commitment to access and inclusion
As the department with lead responsibility for administering the Disability Inclusion Act 2018 (SA) and overseeing the implementation of the State Disability Inclusion Plan, we are committed to improving access and inclusion for all South Australians with disability.
DHS was the first South Australian government department to introduce paid disability leave for employees, which offers additional leave options for employees who need to take time away from the workforce due to their disability.
We have also made it mandatory for all employees to undertake disability awareness and inclusion training within the first three months of employment.
We will integrate, where possible, disability access and inclusion planning with work and activity required under other relevant strategies and frameworks (including subsequent iterations of these plans and strategies), including:
- DHS Strategic Plan 2019–22
- DHS Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2017–2020
- Reconciliation Action Plan 2018–2020
- Accommodation Services Strategic Plan 2019–2020
- SA Youth Action Plan 2020–2022
- Young People Connected, Communities Protected: South Australia’s Youth Justice State Plan 2020–2023
